Youghiogheny Canoe Outfitters & Campground on the Great Allegheny Passage Bike Trail offers Kayaking, Canoing, fishing, biking, and a great Riverfront Campground.
We offer something for all ages and only 35 minutes from Pittsburgh, PA in West Newton. The current is so gentle that there is no whitewater in our area of the Yough and is great for first time guests or our regulars. Once you have your canoe or kayak it is for the day, not by the hour. ADMIT IT....YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS. THIS IS NOT JUST FUN, IT IS AN EXPERIENCE.
If you enjoy biking how about the BIKE & BOAT TRIP ? Let us make your day! Now you can bike up along side the beautiful Youghiogheny River on the GAP Trail. Then we will meet you at the destination point with a canoe or kayak and you float back down stream. We then haul your bikes back to West Newton where you will end your canoe float trip at our home dock on the Yough where your car is parked and waiting. Now you can get nature's beauty and your exercise all at once.
If you do not have a PA fishing license, no problem, we can issue you one on the spot today along with all the live bait you will need to catch alot of fish.
Hey, all you long-haul bikers from the Great Allegheny Passage Bike Trail heading to Washington, DC Cumberland, MD or Pittsburgh, PA......come and use our campround to stay overnight....we have hot showers and FREE Wi-Fi and all the restaurants and shops of West Newton are within WALKING DISTANCE of our riverfront campground. How convenient is that ??
For those of you who want to canoe, kayak and fish, bring your cooler! Youghiogheny Canoe Outfitters will take you and your party completely outfitted to your entry point on the Yough.
You will enjoy your leisurely float down the river to exit at Youghiogheny Canoe Outfitters boat dock in West Newton.
Remember, bring your rods and tackle because we really have the fish. The Yough is one of the premier fisheries in Pennsylvania. This is a sportsman's paradise for fishing. You will find walleye, trout, muskie and the fighting-est fish in the water, the smallmouth bass. The biosystem of this pristine clean, beautiful river generates more and more fish each year. The smallmouth bass, in particular, is now bordering on a population explosion. If your an avid angler you must fish this river.
Wear plenty of sunscreen while paddling, as the glare of the water can magnify the sun's rays and cause a bad sunburn. Whatever you forget we probably have in the store, or can get it for you. At Youghiogheny Canoe Outfitters we just want you to enjoy yourself and relax by floating our scenic river.
